Last year, the South Korean smartphone manufacturer, LG unveiled its highly-anticipated smartphone, LG G5. The new device is undoubtedly one of the most innovative smartphone we have ever seen in recent years thanks to its new modular design, meaning that you can clip new batteries, and cameras to customize the phone to your own requirements.
This year, LG is expected to release the successor to the G5 at MWC 2017. According to LG Chief Technology Officer Skott Ahn, the upcoming LG G6 will be unveiled in very near future. However, tech experts say that the LG G6 will make its debut in February and the new device will initially be launched in North America, Europe and South Korea.
According to sources, LG is moving away from the modular design the Company debuted in the G5 at MWC 2016, instead adopting a glass body found on the Samsung Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge. Tech experts, the new modular design of the G5 made the device special, but it appears that customers are not getting interested in modules that cost extra cash and extra care. This matches with the previous rumors and leaked images about the next LG G6 without modular components.
Rumors say that many of aspects found on the G5 will remain the same on the G6 when it launches sometime in 2017. Earlier this week, a report claimed that the next LG G6 might be cheaper to manufacture than its previous model. The LG G6 could be LG’s strategic plan to bounce back this year following disappointing 2016 when the Company reported operating losses in each quarter.
According to sources, LG remains committed to the smartphone business and will not spin off the mobile division as previously rumored. The LG G6 has been rumored to come with a 5.3-inch Quad HD (1440 x 2560 pixels) display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and a USB Type-C port.
